Central Districts seeking new board

Central Districts have decided to change the nature of their administrative structure to that of the board model suggested for New Zealand Cricket and its associations in the Hood Report of 1996.

Applications are being sought for a seven-member board. The applications will be assessed by a selection panel comprising, the president of CD Jon Cunliffe, CD life member Graeme Young and New Zealand Cricket nominee Barry Dineen.

The selected seven members will then appoint their own chairperson. The board will also decide the order of retirement rotation as two will be required to retire at the end of year one, two in year two and three in year three. Retiring members will be eligible for reappointment should they wish.

Applications close on July 25 and the panel recommendations will be announced on August 22 in time for the board to be confirmed at CD's annual meeting on September 7.

Applications and a CV should be sent to: Chief Executive Officer, CDCA, PO Box 309, Napier.
